    I was wondering if it is possible to setup wireless WPA authentication on separate SSIDs in different bridges. I am trying to setup 2 SSID's in their own lan so that I can route traffic to two different default gateways. I can setup the separate LANs on 2 separate SSIDs with no problem. DHCP/DNS works and each SSID is on their own LAN. The problem arises when I turn on wireless security for the SSID in the new bridge. I cannot authenticate with the router. I can see the SSID and my laptop notices that authentication is required but doesn't authenticate. I used this guide here for DD-WRT http://www.pennock.nl/dd-wrt/Multiple_BSSIDs.html but when I try and use some of the options , such as -p, I get "Command line parsing error: Quitting...... Here is my bridge setup. Wl0.1 is the guest SSID that I modified to direct traffic over a VPN that I connect to.

    Code:
    brctl show
    bridge name     bridge id               STP enabled     interfaces
    br0             8000.50465d6eaa70       yes             vlan1  <----Default Bridge that uses original SSID
    
                                                            eth1
    
                                                            eth2
    
    br1             8000.52465d6eaa71       no              wl0.1  <----Extra bridge for VPN SSID
    admin@RT-N66U:/tmp/home/root#
    Is this a network access server (nas) issue? Is this even possible (I like to think that nothing is impossible) I looked at the source code and didn't see any settings that could be modified but then again I am no expert. If there is a change that I could compile myself that would be no problem. This is the only things standing in the way of me having my home network exactly the way I want it :D Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
